I’m Lilitha. A student at Rhodes University, South Africa. I was first studying a Bachelor of Pharmacy at Rhodes University and a later stage I changed to a Psychology major. I’ve been studying at Rhodes University since 2016, but because of financial hiccups I’ve had to pause my studies, on and off, throughout the years.
In 2018 (my second year) I could not register for the academic year because of the outstanding balance from the previous year. Though I managed to pay off the debt and return to University in 2019, I still struggled with funding until FinacialAid came to my rescue. Unfortunately financial aid only pays off half of the yearly fees, depending on your financial situation. Around the time I had to register for the 2020 academic year, I found myself in the same predicament where I was unable to register because of the previous year’s outstanding balance.
Though I was unable to return to University this year (2020) , I am determined to finish my studies and that is why I’ve started this page. My end goal is to be able to return to University in 2021 and complete my degree.
I am trying to raise 115 819,97 rands/ about 7000 dollars so I can pay off my previous years debt which is 55 954 rands/ 3 381,79 dollars and the rest will be used to pay for my first semester in 2021 (59 865.85 rands/ 3 618.21). I am up to my neck with student loans, but I will have to figure out how to pay for the second semester, that’s if I do not exceed my fundraising end goal.
Any and all assistance will be greatly appreciated. I have about six months until the 2021 academic year starts. Until then, I am trying to raise as much as I can.
